hans rosling – let’s do it because it’s possible

a new way to use leggo’s
the difference – the entire public has to accept the world of equal nations… accept the notion that no one has a given advantage over the rest of the world.
the human force is the engine.
we have enough human resources, enough capital, enough possibility to make a good world.
let’s do it… because it’s possible.

Hans Rosling reframes 10 years of UN data with his spectacular visuals, lighting up an astonishing — mostly unreported — piece of front-page-worthy good news: We’re winning the war against child mortality. Along the way, he debunks one flawed approach to stats that blots out such vital stories.

measuring makes the diff from a political talk and making change happen

June 2014 at TEDSalon Berlin 2014:

Hans and Ola Rosling: How not to be ignorant about the world

5 min – the first thing to know about the future is to know about the present

the problem isn’t that people won’t listen to media – problem is media doesn’t know itself

Ola – why are we all so ignorant? we have a personal bias – from our neighborhood (personal bias), from outdated info in schools, news bias (focus on unusual)

so skewed info – then add on human intuition – we see causality where there is none

solve by measuring – the curing… – ignorance

1. sit down late night and learn all this

2. short cuts – turn intuition into strength – learn to generalize

ie: everything is getting worse, most things improve – pick the improve

using gdp – ugh
